These babies are about 9 weeks old, give or take. I just parted with 5 roos, kept 1, one died. ( had 7 ) I kept 12, thinking/hoping all pullets. Here are just a few that I want to make sure. I am confident 2 of them are pullets, but, double checking.

the only one I worry about is the white/blue one.

the baby on the left is the only one in this batch of 7 that has the full beard, the rest are clean shaven

, in my other batch of 6, they all have full beards. yet all from the same parentage. I guess the genes are stronger on different days of the week, hahaha. anyhoo...

no, roos don't beard out faster. I just had 3 seperate broods within one week of each other, same moms, same dad. Only one brood had all chicks with beards. and the other 2 broods, mostly clean faced. the brood with all the beards, 5 are pullets, 2 are roos.

I'm thinking the white one is a roo. Although he seems to have slow comb development, I'm seeing the start of saddle feathers at the base of the tail.
